Happy Sunday, Ole Miss fans!
Another game day has come and gone and the Rebels are still in control of their own destiny in the SEC West. Ole Miss got a hard-fought road win against Auburn on Saturday, and it was wide receiver Laquon Treadwell who was responsible for the touchdown to put the Rebels up by eight.
Here are four things to know:
- Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze was obviously pleased to get the win. He knows wins, particularly on the road, don’t come easy, and his team has put together two games in a row where they’ve played relatively well.
- The Rebels were so excited to get the win they celebrated in the locker room by claiming they were the Alabama state champions. Of course, Ole Miss defeated Alabama on Sept. 13 in Tuscaloosa.
- The win meant a lot to Treadwell. It had to be a fulfilling moment for the junior wideout to get the big score for Ole Miss against the very team he was severely injured against a year ago. Afterward, Treadwell insisted it wasn’t a revenge game, but it still had to be a cool moment.
- Ole Miss defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche showed his pure strength as he abused an Auburn offensive lineman.
